UK research relies on RSEs, so a campaign started by RSEs and the Software Sustainability Institute founded the UK RSE Association to bring together RSEs to share knowledge, provide support and help campaign for recognition in academia.
A number of groups have been created to support the growing community of RSEs.
This meant that people who write code were being locked into a position who’s success is judged on the number of papers they write, which had the effect of halting their career.
The term “Research Software Engineer” was first coined in 2012.
RSECon UK 2019 will be held at the University of Birmingham, Tuesday 17th to Thursday 19th September 2019.

From the humanities to physics, biology to archaeology, software plays a vital role in generating results.Not all researchers can become skilled software engineers, so a new role has developed in academia: the Research Software Engineer (RSE).If you are from a pre-approved institution you can signup here.The IEEE/ACM Automated Software Engineering (ASE) Conference series is the premier research forum for automated software engineering.
